Possession

Maud Bailey (Gwyneth Paltrow) and a fellow literary researcher Roland Michell (Aaron Eckhart) uncover an affair between married Victorian poet laureate Randolph Henry Ash (Jeremy Northam) and Christabel LaMotte (Jennifer Ehle). They discover letters that reveal that Christabel's lesbian lover had drowned herself over the affair and that the couple had had a child, which turns out to be Maud's great-grandmother. (Maud had believed Christabel to be her great aunt.) While following the trail of clues across England to France of the impassioned couple's romantic journey over a century ago, the present-day scholars fall in love.
